"The Class of 1911 here present the first issue of the Sphinx, which is the second Annual of the High School at Granite City.
Favorably as you have received the work of our predecessors, we trust that the present volume will impress you equally as well.
We thank you for the support which you have given to us in this present undertaking.
We ask your indulgence of those faults which may be apparent and your consideration of the fact that the Sphinx is yet young."
